You mean Derbi, I guess.
No it isn't a Derbi, this is a 4 cyl, Derbi never made a 4/cyl as far as I know.

You re welcome Maddjack
Nice try this time...but it's not a CZ.
You re going to the right direction though (geographically...hint).
You just need to go a bit further.
As I said earlier, this is a difficult trivia, I didn't know about the existence of this bike until recently!

I'm guessing that it's a DMW 250cc Hornet.

It's not a Jawa or a DMW....
It's a bike that was developed behind the Iron curtain, but not in Czech rep....(another hint)

I'm glad youenjoy this trivia
I wouldn't say it's the best so far, but it's certainly a good one! If you go back a few months in the trivia forum you'll see a lot of really interesting trivias.
Unfortunately I was too busy for a while (got married and had a baby!) and the forum died....
I'm trying to revive it these days and anyone can post here their own trivia! Please....

OK back to the Russian GP Bike, YES it is Russian!
This effort was the best ever from that side of the world.
'the maximum expression of the Russians in the motorcycle technology' as my source mentions.

Of course I will share my knowledge, the point of this forum is to entertain and learn some motorcycle history!
This bike was a 250km/h GP weapon in the 60s!

Here is another pic.

I know who rode the machine but if I give it away it's the end of the trivia.
I'll keep trying to help by giving some hints for a while

Post your trivia, it's an open forum!
